Get ready for album number 3 from Golden guitar nominee, Katie Brianna – This Way or Some Other.
The album was produced by Katie’s label mate, Adam Young, who played in 90’s acts the Daisygrinders and Big Heavy Stuff and has assembled a band featuring himself, along with members of fellow alternative rock legends the Cruel Sea, the Clouds and Front End Loader. Some might say that this line-up is “Sound as Ever” but don’t let that draw the attention away from our leading lady (FYI, members of country rockers the Flood, the Re-Mains, Not Good With Horses and Spurs For Jesus also make an appearance, as does Caitlin Harnett).
Brianna has released two previous albums that ticked all the boxes of great Australian alternative country albums. This time around, the idea was to break the shackles of any genres or preconceived ideas of what people expect to hear from her. This Way or Some Other was recorded mostly live in the studio with minimal rehearsal so that the songs would remain fresh. The result is one of complete purity that not only showcases Katie’s astonishing voice but also her gift for songwriting and the written word.
